Teriyaki Marinade

1 Feb

I do the majority of my grocery shopping on Sundays and stock up on tons of vegetables. I always have good intentions (don’t we all!), but by Thursday at least half of them are usually still in the bottom drawer of my refrigerator and starting to get a little soft and wrinkly. I hate, hate, hate throwing away vegetables. So I usually turn to one of two things to use ’em all up fast, either soup or stir-fry.

Stir-fry could potentially be the easiest meal out there. A little chopping of veggies, add in some protein, pour in some sauce, and saute. A meal that comes together in no time flat!

A friend gave me this recipe a few years ago and it has been our go-to stir fry marinade/sauce ever since! Both sweet and savory!

This marinade comes together in minutes with ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard! Throw ’em all in a bowl and whisk away!

Pour the marinade into a zip-lock bag full of meat and veggies! Toss it in the refrigerator and let it does its magic!

I love meals with lots of color! So much more appealing to the eye! I wish I could insert a scratch and sniff to this picture. The soy sauce and sesame oil fill the kitchen with an amazing aroma!

Teriyaki Marinade

1/4 cup soy sauce

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

3 cloves garlic, minced

Whisk all of the ingredients together. Let stand for 10 minutes. Pour over vegetables or meat and allow to marinade at least thirty minutes in the refrigerator.

    Definitely can’t go wrong with a stir fry and it’s always got to be as colourful and as crunchy as possible!
